It's tough to really judge this team right now due to goalie shenanigans, but they do have a lot of work to do collectively on puck security and team D.
I don't like the move, but I get why its being done. most are acting like this was a rogue move by Hakstol. I would be shocked if he hasn't had more than 1 discussion with Hextall on this move.
